Public Health Nursing

One Government Center, Room 431, Fall River, MA 02722
T: 508-324-2420 




The Division of Public Health Nursing performs a variety of professional and scientific work within the various fields of nursing.

The practice is population based, that is, based on a process that determines:

  • The health status of the community
  • Identifies the population at risk
  • Determines the priority health problems of the community
  • Plans, implements, and evaluates public health strategies accordingly at community, systems, or family/individual levels.

Our commitment to the community, families, and individuals served originates from our beliefs that all persons, regardless of circumstances, are entitled equally to a basic quality of life and respect for worth.

Most of our interventions are independent nursing functions as outlined in the Nurse Practice Act.
